The Edge: A Star Trek Discovery Podcast

Feb 4, 2018

Terran Emperors.

Our month-long jaunt to the Mirror Universe is over, and Discovery closed out its trip to the dark side with an exciting and epic installment that delivered a few unexpected twists and raised some big questions.

In this episode of Notes from The Edge, in which we deep-dive into connections between Star Trek: Discovery and the broader Star Trek universe, host C Bryan Jones shares his thoughts on whether Lorca could return in Prime wrappings, Saru’s speech, why the jump home created a new timeline, and how the mycelial network fundamentally changes how we think about universes in Star Trek. We also delve into the origin and meaning of the title, “What’s Past Is Prologue,” and say goodbye to the Mirror Universe with a rundown of all 21 Terran Emperors.
